Two Different Finches

The goldfinch picture is from a year ago. Doesn't he look fine in his spring plumage?

I think the bird standing on my neighbor's garden torch is a male house finch. What do you think?

 I hope you are staying well. I have started wearing a face mask again when shopping. Covid cases are increasing again in my area. 


  1. I agree with you that goldfinch is male.... pretty.

    Yes, Covid 19 cases are increasing in Louisiana as well. Take care

  2. Your second bird is a House Finch, as you surmised. As for masking, I never gave up on it in enclosed public spaces.

  3. They are both cute birds, great photos. Take care, enjoy your day!

  4. ...I've never stopped wearing a mask.

  5. Yep, I'm doing the mask thing, too.
